I was trying to make it so there isnt as many programs starting on the startup, which i figured out you can you msconfig for that, and when i unchecked some programs and restarted and got back on, a pop up came up that said i have to change the System Configuration Utility back to normal startup, and i do, but then in the BOOT.INI, it changes to the safemode restart. How to I make it so that I can have Winows start up Normally, without the safemode checked?

No, see if I click on normal statrtup, then it checks the safemode. If I check the normal mode and go and uncheck safemode, then it goes to selective startup.
